Well tributes, we’ve been waiting for this news for a long time and the day has finally arrived–we have our Coryo! People exclusively announced that Tom Blyth has been cast as young Coriolanus Snow in The Hunger Games prequel The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes!
Here’s what director Francis Lawrence and producer Nina Jacobson had to say about the casting:
“Coriolanus Snow is many things — a survivor, a loyal friend, a cutthroat, a kid quick to fall in love, and a young man ambitious to his core,” says Lawrence, 51. “Tom’s take on the character showed us all the complex ambiguities of this young man as he transforms into the tyrant he would become.”
“Tom’s performance will both fulfill and disrupt everything you think you know about Coriolanus Snow,” adds producer Nina Jacobson. “He’s a tremendous talent who will show why Snow always lands on top.”
Let us know your thoughts on the casting and be sure to tune into Tribute Talk tonight! We’ll be discussing all our thoughts on the casting with our fellow tribute friends! Listen live tonight on YouTube! at 6pm PST / 9pm EST!
The Hunger Games Complete Collection is now available to preorder! The set will be released on March 22nd, 2022–just in time for the first film’s 10th anniversary! Can you believe it’s been that long? Currently, the price is set at $89.99 USD. It also appears that there are no new special features from the 4 Film Collection that released in 2016. The set, however, is formatted in 4K.
Exciting news tributes! We’ve been hoping that LionsGate would be celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the first film in the franchise this March and it looks like we’re starting to get some info on exactly what the festivities will include!
From the image posted on social media earlier today, it appears that LionsGate will be releasing a new 4 film DVD/Blu-Ray set in SteelBook packaging. No word on special features or release regions yet.
Isn’t that Mockingjay artwork amazing??
From online reports, we believe that the full artwork and official release date will be shared with us all tomorrow, so keep your eyes open (pun intended)!
Is there anything else you’re hoping for? We here at Into the Arena are crossing our fingers for a rerelease of The Hunger Games in theaters. We would love to see it one more time on the big screen!
